    I had them for exactly one week, and just this moment, the left earbud gives out. WTF? I don't put the volume up full-blast, and I never tightly wrap it around my iPod. It was working fine, and then when I selected one song, it happened.

    Quoted for the Truth. Mine only lasted nearly a month before it gave out. The bottom part of the cord near the headphone jack friggin gave out. I have to freakin mangle it into strange positions to even barely get ONE side to work. Let alone BOTH. I've resorted to using my old Apple ear buds. One side being kinda broken, too high pitched, no bass. But at least they work. :|

    Skullcandy I mean what kind of a name is that?

    the only reason they are worth so much is because they don't sell.

    just get regular Headphones like Philips SHE9500 10 bucks on ebay. and they work perfectly

    Yeah, skullcandy isn't that great, but suprisingly I have had my ink'd earbuds for more than a year and they still work; although I did have to cut out a small section of wire on the right earbud and re solder it and today I had to completly replace the wire with one from a crappy pair of earbuds. But for the price they are not that bad. I'm thinking I might go get a pair of v-Modas soon.

    Don't Skullcandies have lifetime warranties?
